I really need help with a dream interpretation
I’m having a reoccurring dream that happens over a series of phases (with no connections among the phases) the first one is I’m shopping in a large crowded supermarket (walmart or target etc) with my Aunt ( on my mother’s side) and my father, I decide to use the bathroom, upon entering the bathroom i notice that the bathroom is way nicer than that of a supermarket almost like a swanky club. I do my business and begin to wash my hands, in the mirror I see a scraggly disheveled scarred man, I am instantly petrified, he reaches for me aggressively and I lunge backwards onto the door and begin trying to unlock it, he peruses me and before he reaches me I get the door open and fall backwards through the door back into the store. I call for help but no one is there.
The next phase is me, two friends/classmates, and my aunt (same aunt). We’re in a library doing some sort of paper work, and that’s it nothing interesting.
The next phase takes place in the fall and is me, and one of my friends/classmates from the last phase, we’re walking to class from the coffee shop (like most mornings) and he says we should detour through the recently built park (no such park exists or has ever existed) we walk through the park and then go to class.
The last phase is me laying on a blanket in the same park this time in the summer, laying next to me is a man but I can’t see his faces he offers me a red flower with a string tied to it. I take it and then I wake up.
have absolutely no idea what this mean but I would like to know. ( I’ve had the dream about 10 times now)

Dream of a Deformed Dog
Last night I had a freaky dream. Wasn’t really a nightmare because the overall vibe was positive but definitely got caught off guard in it. I was at an animal shelter with the premise I guess of adopting a dog. I feel like I wanted to go for a dog that’s been there a while, that no one wanted, perhaps special needs. So I get taken into a room with this dog. He’s laying on a dog bed, with his head facing away from me. I’m told his name is Gummy. He is a Dalmatian, Golden Retriever mix so he’s spotted like a Dalmatian but with the fluffiness of a Golden Retriever. He’s quite large as well, probably coming to my waist when I am standing. As I approach him, he turns his head and finally looks at me. I’m shocked for a second at what I see. His jaw is deformed, a little off center with the lower jaw being too short for the top snout so his tongue is out and he has scarring as if he’s had corrective surgery. His lips are taut and show off his gums, hence the name Gummy. He looks like he’s always smiling or baring teeth. For a few seconds I’m taken off guard and say “Oh God” as I wasn’t expecting his appearance then he starts wagging his tail at me and I pet him. We’re having a good interaction when I wake up. Ideas?

Nightmare I had, but never got interpreted.
what had happened was, the US had been nuked, but I was in my old house my family (during the divorce, my mom and my brother.) had managed to survive, but then waves of natural disasters came, but we managed to survive. Later on we took in some other people. There was a girl that we had let in, but she seemed familiar. Anyways, I went downstairs to play some Pokken Tournament on a switch. (Which, keep in mind, at my older house the wall where the TV was, there wasn't one.) Anyways, the switch got stuck on the loading screen. I went back upstairs. After that I went downstairs with a girl to go get supplies and be safe or something, but on my way down, there was a windstorm or something. It seemed like a windstorm broke down the glass windows, and I had gotten scratches and scars in my arm. The most vivid one I can recall was the scratch near the top of my left arm. That scared me to shit. I don't recall what happened to the girl. (Alright, so to provide backstory, do you know what the Finnish frogmen look like? If not, Google them.) So the frogmen in bone white armor and glowing purple eyes seemed to be military or militia, but I recall one jumping at me through the window as I was on my way down the stairs. However, as that part happened, I felt like I had a choice to stay in the dream, but I didn't. I talked about this dream with a friend as I have never had a dream like this. I felt horrified after waking up. One of my friends said that the cause might be something that changed me. (To provide more backstory, I had just lost most of my friends, and I feel like I'm the bad person, and I was bullied a lot from 1st grade until 5th grade when I moved and a kid convinced all the other kids to bully me otherwise he'd bully them. I don't know what's going on in my life anymore. I can't stand hearing the voices of my ex-friends during zoom meetings at school, because it always reminds me how shit of a person I am.)

Pulling maggots out of my skin
I just had this strange, scary, creepy dream that made me feel so grossed out and desperate. I’m female, 26, white, moved out of my parents recently, have a new partner that makes me very happy, but have been worrying about my finances.
In this dream, I suddenly realize that I have maggots/white worms inside my body, as they start to come out, one by one, slowly. I feel a little pain/burn, and when I look, their head is coming out and I have to pull them out, slowly, because they are sucking my blood and if I pull them out too quickly it can hurt me. Sometimes blood comes out when I do this.
A random stranger guy who I can’t even remember very calmly said “oh you just have to cover the holes with some glue” and glued the little holes they left of my skin. At this point I start worrying that he glued holes that still had maggots that needed to come out and that he trapped them inside my body. The holes were like a round red scar, and I had them all over my body.
I felt so desperate and upset. I live alone and woke up feeling like I wanted to call my dad or something, so that a familiar voice could calm me down a little and make me snap out of it. It was awful.
I don’t remember places, colors, contexts… All I can think of is maggots, feeling scared, blood and me desperately wanting it to stop and be fixed asap.
If anyone has any thoughts on this and/or advice, I would love to know them. Thank you so much for your time and for reading. Have a wonderful day :)

Headless Christian People that blew their own heads off
I had a dream that I was standing in my mom’s living room and staring out the front window. I saw multiple people walking around aimlessly, and all of their heads were missing. I turn around and noticed there was a headless girl in the room with me. We started to communicate through like an ESP situation. I asked her why she didn’t have a head? She told me she blew it off with a shotgun. I asked her why and she responded “Jesus Christ told me to do it, so I did.” And I said “That’s ridiculous, you shouldn’t have done that.” She responded “We don’t ask questions, we just follow his orders.”
They were all naked, but no prominent sexual features or anything, just very androgynous and muted. They all looked the same. They weren’t bloody or mutilated, just a flat scar where their neck should’ve been.
